Light up FB for Victims of Gun Violence?

I find it interesting that after the Paris attacks everyone changed their FB profile picture to the Flag of France and yet, after the last several gun incidents in America things have been relatively quiet on Facebook? 

Have we just become so immune to these acts of violence that we've come to accept them? 

I don't know about you, but I feel helpless to do anything to change the current situation.

But when I feel helpless I look for ways to help. 

So today I changed my FB profile picture to this candle above.  It can be downloaded here:

This candle is to honor all of the victims of gun violence and to show my support of gun control.  This can't keep happening.  I will do my part to shine a light on this!

Wouldn't it be great to see FB lit up with candles in solidarity for gun control?  When is enough enough?

UPDATE 12/4  I expected to wake up this morning and see that at least a few of my friends had candles for their profile pics, but nothing.  This is what I don't understand.

I'm going to keep my candle up until we get tougher gun control laws.  What if everyone on FB did this?  Would the NRA be able to ignore this? Would our representatives?
